Speaking at the 5th meeting of ministers and high authorities of Tourism of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), the Cuban minister commented on the consequences of both US measures in the sector.
He acknowledged the impact of these coercive actions which had a negative impact on Cuba’s tourism sector and its recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic.
García recalled that the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on his country by the Government of the United States is more than 60 years old, and described Cuba’s recent inclusion on the “spurious list” of countries that allegedly sponsor terrorism as “arbitrary and unfair.”
The minister conveyed to those present a “warm and sincere greeting” from Raúl Castro, leader of the Cuban evolution; President Miguel Díaz-Canel; and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero.
The meeting of ministers and high authorities of Tourism of the ALBA-TCP is being held parallel to the 16th Venezuela International Tourism Fair, which opened on Thursday until November 27 in Barquisimeto, state of Lara, with the presence of 33 nations.
